Updated policy changes on migration is a step in the right direction.

The UK government’s announcement on Thursday of a change in policy regarding its migration partnership with Nigeria is a positive step forward in its efforts to deport dangerous foreign criminals and make the country safer for everyone. Home Secretary Priti Patel, made the announcement in a tweet, stating that the new deal will help the government achieve its goal of protecting the public from dangerous individuals. This is a welcome change in policy that will make the UK a safer place for all its citizens.

The European Union and Nigeria have agreed to work together to tackle illegal migration and put an end to the criminal gangs that exploit vulnerable people. As part of this agreement, 13 Nigerians were recently deported back to Lagos. The 8 Ghanaians that were found are continuing on their journey. This deal is an important step in taking the fight to the criminal smugglers and stopping them from exploiting vulnerable people and wasting people’s lives. It is also a sign of the strong cooperation between the European Union and Nigeria in tackling this issue.

Nigeria’s migration patterns have changed dramatically in recent years.

The European human rights court issued an injunction to stop the UK government’s deportation of asylum seekers to Rwanda, which would have marked the commencement of the UK-Rwanda deal announced on April 1. The court’s decision came as a last-minute surprise, and it is not yet clear what the implications of this ruling will be. However, it is clear that the UK government’s plans to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda are now on hold.

Nigeria’s migration history is complex and diverse. In recent years, Nigeria has experienced large-scale internal and international migration. For centuries, the country has been a destination for migrants from all over Africa. More recently, Nigeria has also become a source of migrants, with many Nigerians migrating to other parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Nigeria’s migration patterns have changed dramatically in recent years. In the past, most migration was internal, with people moving from rural areas to urban centers in search of employment.

The majority of Nigerian migrants to Europe are young adults aged 18-34.

Nigeria’s migration to North America has been a long and difficult journey for many. There are a variety of reasons why people have chosen to migrate, but the most common is the search for a better life. Nigeria is a country that is plagued by poverty, violence, and political instability, making it an unattractive place to live for many. North America, on the other hand, is a developed region with a strong economy and stable political system. This has made it a much more attractive destination for those looking to start a new life.

Migration from Nigeria to Europe has been a significant phenomenon in recent years. Nigeria is one of the top African countries of origin for migrants to Europe, with over 100,000 Nigerians estimated to be living in Europe as of 2019. The majority of Nigerian migrants to Europe are young adults aged 18-34, and the vast majority are male. Nigeria has a high level of unemployment, particularly among young people, and many migrants see Europe as a way to escape poverty and provide for their families back home.

Many Nigerians think the risk of migration is worth the potential rewards.

Nigeria has one of the highest rates of migration to Asia of any country in the world. Every year, thousands of Nigerians make the journey to Asian countries. While some Nigerians do find success in Asia, many others face challenges such as language barriers, cultural differences, and discrimination. Despite the challenges, Nigeria’s migration to Asia continues to grow. In Asia, there are many countries with rapidly growing economies that offer greater opportunities for economic advancement than Nigeria. For many Nigerians, the risk of migrating to Asia is worth the potential rewards.

What everyone seeks is a better living.

A lot of those people won’t have bordered to move out of the country if the way of life is of importance.

Inquest of finding a better life, people go through a series of agony.

Our leader should just learn from developed countries and implement the change.

Nigerians will continue to migrate to North America and Asian nations in search of better pastures as long as their government doesn’t act responsibly by creating an environment that allows its population to exist. In order to break the cycle of poverty, individuals must work to survive.

This is an encouraging shift in policy that will make the United Kingdom a more secure environment for all its residents. Nigeria should take note

In the past, most migration occurred within the country, with individuals moving from rural areas to urban centres in pursuit of employment. However, this is no longer the case, and people are yearning to leave in quest of better opportunities elsewhere.

The desire to make a better life for oneself is the most common impetus behind people’s decisions to move, although many other factors are at play. If the government were good, people wouldn’t move.

It is a good thing that the UK government has opted to safeguard their citizenry, and the updated regulations involving migration issues are a good thing because they strive to protect all parties concerned.

Why can’t Nigerians do things right for once. Why do they have to tarnish the image of the country with theirs. Right now the country’s economy is in jeopardy and the best option is to travel out and make money to feed the family members here in Nigeria. Then why on earth will this people destroy the opportunity for those that actually need it. I wouldn’t blame UK for signing this deal but I’ll blame the government and the people that failed us

The fact that Nigerians are being classified as criminals is disheartening. We’ll just have to appeal to those that are still in the UK to keep a clean record for us. And anyone that’s planning to go should do it legally and if it doesn’t work out they should try to go to other countries.

Signing this deal is definitely not a bad idea, this is just a government trying to protect its people from harm. So far this deal won’t affect the innocent ones then I fully support it.

This is not the right time for UK to send criminals to Nigeria. But the Uk government are trying to make their country safer is what every good government would do. We can’t blame them but blame our country which has failed us. I repeat, we can’t blame them but blame our country which has failed us (thing has not been falling in places recently, the Nigeria Government hasn’t done anything to fix it).

First of, Nigeria has the highest record of migration. Nigerians are basically almost in every continent. If the country was in good state, this wouldn’t be. Buh people migrate to seek better life. The Uk trying to make their country safer is what every good government would do. Sadly, it simply makes Nigeria more of a danger zone with prison breaks here and there

Nigeria’s should not be deported or sent out of the uk because they colonized us and we should even have easy access to the country

The truth is that the country Government no understand anything. Bring them back to a country that they can not manage at all. Yesterday terrorist break kuje perison in Abuja the capital of so called Nigeria. The Government should cover their face in shame. They should keep on looking for deals and what to sign oo, instead of fixing the country first

This was long overdue. Giving the facts that the UK gave Nigeria independence, we should not be deported unless the person has a criminal record either in Nigeria or UK. People seeking asylum should be given a fair trial in the UK to explain the reason why they are seeking asylum. Asylum seekers are people in need of shelter, food, and most of all security. If this agreement will be executed correctly it will be great.

Of a truth the the treaties signed by UK and Nigeria concerning the deportation of criminals to Nigeria is a good one. This will allow the government to deal with Nigeria criminals in the Nigerian way.
However, I will want us to remember what has been happening in Nigeria recently. The jailbreaks, especially the one that happened just yesterday at Kuje prison in Abuja (Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria), banditry, Fulanis herdsmen attacks on the innocent, killings and kidnapping everywhere in Nigeria. The Nigerian government now want deportation of hardened criminals to Nigeria from UK (We’re in big trouble in Nigeria) to make UK a safe place and make Nigeria a danger zone to law abiding citizen. It is well o

Illegal migration is not a survival strategy all this are happen because of the bad economy, insecurity, poverty. If we have a good economy and standard economy people with me thinking it twice b4 they travel illegally, and there are risk involved in this act so our country need to improve inother for them to be able to reduce or prevent people from trying to leave the country by force, people are not have patience because they are suffering in the country that why they try to leave and try else where in other to be financially okay.

The thing with migration in Nigeria is that It won’t stop anytime soon. The migration deal with UK is to strengthen the sovereignty of the British. Some of Nigerians migrating to the UK are mostly engaging in crimes, especially defrauding people. The UK are ready to tackle this menace, this is why they signed the agreement to deport any illegal migrants. We can’t blame them but blame our country which has failed us.

As long as the government of Nigeria didn’t do the right thing by providing enabling environment for it citizens to survive,there will be more migration of it citizen to North America and Asian countries because of greener pasture,people need to work to survive and brake the shackle of poverty.

It is so funny that the government of Nigeria made a deal with UK to transfer criminals to Nigeria. It was just yesterday that we heard about jail break at Kuje prison in Abuja by the Bandits who shot sporadically with three explosion to gain entrance and free the inmate.
This is not the right time for UK to send criminals to Nigeria. Things here are still backward with this Fulanis that want to take over Nigeria at all cost and enslave us. This is certainly not the right time.

UK migration has been the surest and easiest way for Nigerians to get out of this country, but now, with the way things are going, it’s going to be hard to get their Visa. God help us

These people that go abroad to commit crimes are seriously denting our image very soon now; some countries will ban Nigerians from visiting.
